I've just talked to VirtualBox upstream and they told me that beginning with 6.1.0 release there is no longer x86_32 support as host. So all I can (and will) do is to remove x86 keyword from all virtualbox ebuilds that are host related.
I'm sorry to tell you this. Upstream said that 6.0.x will keep support for x86_32 until EOL in about six months.
